Down 1-0 in their series with Coventry, East Greenwich forced a game three behind the stellar pitching performance from Grogan O’Brien in 5-1 victory.

The right-handed pitcher struck out three batters and allowed just one run on three hits in seven innings of work.

A sacrifice fly by Thomas Speltz put EG on the board first in the bottom of the third inning.

O’Brien, Ryan Marcantonio, Robert Brooks, Lenny Kiernan, and Ryan Sheeran each collected one hit for the EG Connie Mack Avengers.

Also, Marcantonio, Speltz, Kiernan, and Sean Giannelli each drove in one run for the maroon and white.

Unfortunately for East Greenwich, however, they lost game three, 5-2.

East Greenwich ends a solid summer with an overall record of 11-7.
